A YOUNG woman has been shot and killed after jumping out of a closet in an apparent prank.

The Longmont Times-Call reports police are investigating a shooting that left 18-year-old Premila Lal dead.

Police told the newspaper that a 21-year-old man who shot the woman and then assisted two other witnesses to take her to Longmont United Hospital was co-operating with the investigation.

They said that the man, identified as Nerrek Galley of Orem, Utah, had been arrested "for actions unrelated to the shooting." Police said the shooting was not gang related and that drugs and alcohol did not appear to be involved.

"We can characterise this young woman's death as unintended and extremely tragic," a police officer told the newspaper. He said report that Lal had been hiding in a closet and that Galley shot her when she jumped out and startled him - "is consistent with our investigation."
